How to register to vote

Registering to vote in Knox County has never been easier than it is now; the State of Tennessee has made it possible to register to vote online! Click here to follow the online form and get registered.

  • In order to register online, you need to have a Tennessee driver's license or Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security ID. If you do not have one of these readily available, you need to follow the directions below to mail in your registration form.
  • Online voter registrations follow the same deadlines as mail-in registrations; the registration must be submitted at least 30 days before the election that you wish to vote in.

If you would prefer to register in person or through mail, follow these few simple steps:

  1. Print off this application:

  2. Fill out the form. Pay attention to all questions and make sure that you answer the questions located in Sections 1 & 11. If you miss any piece of required information, they will not accept your application.

  3. Return the application to the Knox County Election Commission. You can do this by mailing your application form in a stamped envelope to 300 Main St., Suite 218 Knoxville, TN 37902; returning your application in person to this address; or dropping your application by KCDP Headquarters and we will make sure that your application gets to the Election Commission.

  4. In a few weeks, you will receive your voting card in the mail. You may also get a follow up call making sure that you received this card.

Remember that if you register to vote by mail, you must vote in person in your first election! If you have any difficulties or questions call our office (865.540.4001) and someone will help guide you through the process.
